    Venus and Adonis (Modern)

    "By this, poor Wat, far off upon a hill,
    Stands on his hinder-legs with list'ning ear
    To hearken if his foes pursue him still.
    700Anon their loud alarums he doth hear,
    And now his grief may be comparèd well
    To one sore sick that hears the passing bell.
